Listener Opinions

    " If you like Stephanie Plum, you'll like this too. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Heidi | 2/1/2014

    " This was an okay book, the first of a series. It follows Bubbles, a down on her luck hairdresser that moonlights as a reporter on her first major story. I felt that this book took me a really long time to read, I wasn't captivated. I don't think I'll pick up another one of her books. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becka | 1/20/2014

    " This is a fun, humourous series. Puts me in mind of Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series in some ways. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 1/18/2014

    " Bubbles is great! This whole series is lots of fun. Reminiscent of the earlier Stephanie Plum books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaimie | 1/14/2014

    " What kind of name is bubbles?! It's hard not to laugh along with her - she is a barbie blonde hairdresser/amateur journalist. I will be reading more about her I am sure since this was a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kitty | 1/12/2014

    " Blond, bimbo hairdresser by day and daring wanna-be journalist by night. A fun, "easy" murder mystery. Can she bring down the town's head honcho steel magnet, before he brings her down? I didn't expect to like this, but actually thought it was kind of cute. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ali | 1/7/2014

    " a fun light book i read on our honeymoon and have read all others in series too "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 MrsB | 1/2/2014

    " Totally fluffy read as other Strohmeyer books have been. Some people might really like hairdresser turned investigative reporter Bubbles and her tacky personality. I guess I can't say it was that bad since I finished it in two days. I skipped over the sections of beauty secrets. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenni Boyd | 12/28/2013

    " I thought this was really funny, I read it on the plane and had many other travellers looking at me as at times found it hard to contain my laughter. Shared it with my daughter who also loved it, we bought the rest of the series, would love to see it in movie form. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gizzard | 11/16/2013

    " Good until the end where it goes from action packed to bubbles babbling the story. Classic telling not showing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steph Adams | 11/1/2013

    " I'm hooked. On to the next Bubbles adventure... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 LikeTheDog | 10/30/2013

    " Light, but a fun read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber Hight | 10/14/2013

    " SUPER fun series I read last year, very similar feel as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mary Ann Donaghy | 10/11/2013

    " Loved all of the Bubbles books. Laughed out loud and makes you smile...a lot! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 6/7/2013

    " Oh My...what a fun addition to my bookshelf! Bubbles is truly a "character" and I strongly suggest you get to know her! "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Erin(and Hannah) | 5/9/2013

    " Only got a little way into this and knew it wasn't for me. Not the best author and she takes the cheap way out throwing in sexual innuendos to supposedly be funny. Too many other things out there stacked up for me to read... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kylie | 1/22/2013

    " As part of my personal "summer slumming" reading program, I read chick lit mysteries. Any book that makes me laugh out loud gets an automatic 5 stars. Who knew that such a stupid heroine could be so likeable? The rest of the Bubbles series keeps the laughter going. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Leslie | 8/30/2012

    " Similar to Janet Evanovich, but not quite. However, I'll probably finish the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 7/29/2012

    " I needed something fun, and this fit the bill! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Janice | 7/26/2012

    " I wasn't too sure about this book at first. After picking it up, I checked it out because the author is a news writer. Very Janet Evanovich-esque, funny, light and honestly I really liked it. I'll try the next one in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jim | 4/23/2012

    " An Evanovich protege, moving the protagonist from Trenton just a hop skip and jump over the Delaware to Easton, PA. Enjoyable enough especially for Plum fans. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jan | 12/19/2011

    " A pretty screwball mystery described as Pennsylvania's answer to Erin Brockovitch, Bubbles Yablonsky is a curvy beautician addicted to high hair and spandex and yearns to be a reporter of note. Pure mind candy that will put you on a sugar high. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Debbie | 10/24/2011

    " The first of the series. A fun book, but nothing to rave about. I love this author, but this book didn't pull me in like her other books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shirley | 9/16/2011

    " Fun. Easy read. If you like Evanovich you will enjoy Bubbles. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 pop | 8/14/2011

    " Great fun, a good read. Ms. Strohmeyer is a good friend of Janet Evanovich, and it shows. Not usually as heavy as some of Evanovich's books get. Really great fun, can't put it down read. the whole series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Carrie | 5/12/2011

    " Cute and fun; who knew peas and mashed potatoes could be so dangerous?

    Bubbles and Stephanie Plum should team up! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kiki | 3/29/2011

    " Easy read. Funny in some parts. Not an original idea - Kinda a spin on stephanie plum, but I like the author's other books too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Amber | 3/17/2011

    " SUPER fun series I read last year, very similar feel as Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum books! "
